Be Careful What You Ask For, Part 5

, , , , | Right | November 15, 2011

(This takes place a few months before I leave for college. A lot of the kids working at the store are leaving for college soon, too. One of my coworkers has written, “Tips for college kids,” on the tip jar. A young mother walks in with her kids on a slow afternoon. After she reads the tip jar, this exchange happens.)

Customer: “Tips for college kids… I have a good tip. Stay away from tequila.”

Me: “Why’s that, ma’am?”

Customer: “I went through a lot of margaritas my freshman year. Now I can’t even look at tequila without feeling sick. Just stay away from it!”

Me: “Don’t worry, ma’am. I’ll stick to vodka.”

(And yes, she did leave a nice tip!)
